Resilient rural Belize (Be-Resilient) Approved February 2019 Est. implementation period 5.0 years
The project will increase resilience of smallholder farmers in Belize to climate change impacts that have negative consequences on agricultural yields of important commodities for the country. Specifically, the project will develop climate-proof selected value chains (six vegetables, one fruit, and bee keeping) of smallholder farmers, which strengthen economic stability and resilience. The project will also increase access to markets through rehabilitation of critical infrastructure. It will deploy grant award and on-lending mechanisms and work with producers’ organizations and local communities to meet their needs in addressing the impacts of climate change. It is estimated that through this project, around 30,000 people, in 23 communities and five districts will benefit directly from increased access to climate information services for agricultural planning, climate-resilient agricultural practices and greater access to markets through resilient rehabilitated roads.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 15 years.
